Letter(s) to Guy (USA)

Letter 1

Hello Guy.

Thank you for your reply. I am very glad you wrote to me.

I am sorry you was unable to find my profile at personals. I couldn't make it to work.
To be honest I am a little sceptical about dating services in Internet and I didn't think it really works and I havn't checked my email too long. I just made a try... and you wrote. :) Thank you.

By the way my profile doesn't work still so I will describe myself here.
My birthday is January 21, 1976. I am 29 now. I am Russian. My height is 165 cm (5'5"), weigt - 53 kg (123 lb). I will attach a picture of me, so you can see my appearance.

I live in Russia. And I have never been to the US. But I hope I will visit this country one day. I live in a small russian town Rostov. It is Kostroma region.

I don't smoke and drink rarely. Prefer red wine.

I work as a teacher at the school.

I keep active life, interesting in sports and outdoors. Also I am interesting in history, geographics and social sciences. I have a lot of hobbies, like reading and listening to music. Cookery is one of my favourite things. Also I like animals and children.

As for my character, I don't like to tell about it. I try to be good person. Enough emotional and sensible. My best qualities: loyalty, honesty, sense of humour, natural curiosity and simplicity. I know that I can't be objective telling about myself. At least I want people think about me this way. :)

What about religion, I am a Christian but not too religious. I think more spiritual.

Marital status: single, never been married. Have had some strong relationships in my life but currently is free. No children.

I want simple things. To be happy, to have someone to share my life with, to have family, to love and be loved. I am not sure Internet can help with it, but I like to try new things. Internet is good medium for intercommunication. And it is silly not to use that.

I want to meet kind man with good soul and great sense of humor. I would like he could be my friend, life partner and lover. I want to feel his need in me, his support and understanding. I don't need any prince. He just should be kind, sympathetic, decent and honest man.

I know that great distance may become the problem. So I want to start from friendship. I like to make friends and if things will not work between us we would stay in touch as good friends.

Well, I think it is enough for now. Tryed to write just a short note :)

I am sorry if something is wrong. This is my first experience in Internet dating. Tell me about yourself and what you think.

Thank you for your interest. Hope we will begin good contact and who knows what may happen.

Yours truly.

Letter 2

Hi, Guy.

Thank you for your reply. I enjoyed reading your letter.

I am very pleased you are interested in me. Guy, I want us to keep our correspondence and to know each other better. Write me about your life, send pictures. I promise to do the same.

By the way Guy, if you note any mistakes in my letter don't be shy to report them to me. I have been studying English for some years at the University and then by myself. I like to read books in English. And I still think I am not good enough to speak and to communicate easily. Your corrections would help me much. I write it by myself with a dictionary and I want to improve my language skills.

You know our meeting was a chance. I have been surfing the Internet for some months. The first time I used the Internet was for my work. I read about new methods of teaching in mathematics. Then I started to surf the Internet for two or three times a week. And now it is one of my favourite things to do. Recently, I have been interested in the dating service and decided to try it. I choose several profiles and you replied.
:-) Others havn't wrote me. I am glad we've met.

Guy, I use Internet at Internet cafe. They have several computers here for public use. I am here two or three times a week so don't worry if I can't reply fast. I will write you each time I am here.

Guy, I still can't imagine you are in the USA. Sounds silly? :-) I have never been to the States. I know your country just from the movies and TV. I would like to learn more about it and your people. I think we could give each other more full images about our countries by corresponding. I also hope to visit the USA some day. I like to travel very much. It is great to see the world all over. I haven't travel much. I was in several russian cities and once at the Black Sea. I have a picture from there. My favourite city is St.Petersburg. Very beautiful place.

Well, I am a little confused and I don't know what to say. I hope all this stuff is not too boring to read. :-)

Guy, I have already told you that I want to find someone through Internet. I just wanted to say that it is my serious intention. I am interested in you and I want us to be good friends.

Write me back. Waiting for your letter.

By the way my real name is Ekaterina or Katya - for short. You can call me as you like :).

Letter 3

Hi Guy.

I received your letter and it gave me good hope. Thank you very much. I am so happy. You are saving my future. Smile. I knew you are the man I can rely on. I appreciate your willing to help highly. I will pay money back to you in any case. This is my wish.

I consulted with Andrey about how you can get the money to me. He said we have short time so we must do it quickly. He advised me that we should use western union. You must hear about it? He said they have many agents everywhere in the world. I will be unable to receive your money. Andrey said this is big sum and I will have to take tax return. It takes much time and I may not have enough time before my flight. If I won't do it I may have some juridical problems and it may cause problems with customs and my visa. I even might be unable to fly.

Andrey wants to help me. He can receive your money for me. He used to receive transfers from overseas through western union for our trade union and that works really good.

Find some western union agent close to you and send money from them. Andrey said you can also send money online from there web site: www.westernunion.com

He will receive your money at Alfa Bank in Voronezh. They have western union agent. There is the address:
VORONEZH, 394000

Put his name in order as Andrey Yaremchuk and let me know MTCN (control number) and your name and address as it appears in transfer. Andrey said he would need it to get the money. Write me this information after you send money and we will receive the transfer with Andrey together.

Guy, they really made me so busy with this travel. I have already passed all my papers to new teacher. He is a man and he tried to flirt with me. Smile. Don't worry, he is not to my taste. I said him I am leaving to the USA to date my man. Smile. It was worth seeing how much he was surprised.

Last two days I was in Voronezh in medical centre. I met two other teachers there. They are in this programm too. Nice girls, Natalia and Veronica, about my age. I am sure you will like them. They work in Voronezh in very well school and their travel is fully paid. I told them about my situation and you. They are happy I have you to help me. We decided to hold together and come to your state for work. Smile.

First day in Voronezh we had medical inspection and differnet tests and analysis. I hadn't got full medical examination for a long time before and I was a little nervous. Fortunately everything is good. I am completely healthy.

Next day we spent at studies. We had 4 lectures in one day. The first one was English language. The full professor from the Voronezh University teached us to speak English. It was like consultation about using school terminology in English. They want us to talk correctly with our colleagues in the USA. Then we had the lecture about the psychology of relations and intercourse. We must be tactful professionally. And two lectures about new methods in teaching that used in the USA. It was very difficult part of the studies. America are ahead of Russia in teaching methods. I returned home the late evening. It was really interesting to know all these new things and I still have a lot of information I must read and lean before my travel.

They said us that we must be in Moscow two days before the flight. All teachers will come there. We will get hard training with the best professionals in Russia. Guy, I will communicate with the people that I saw on TV and read in the periodical. I can't believe it. They are well-known teachers and I am just a teacher from province. It is really stirring events for me. Smile.

Guy, I am really happy that is happening with me. I feel myself so lucky to find you. And I am very grateful to you for your help. I like you Guy, and I am sure we will like each other when we meet. I know there are some things like phisical attraction and so on. But I have already strong excitement thinking of you and I feel an attraction to you.

Kiss you.

Yours always,
